Antiquity of Singing Psalms and Hymns 5 
With an Account of ^usBook, and the Ule thereof. 

TH E Praifing of G O D by Pfahns and Hymns, as It feems a 
•part of Natural Religion owned and iifed by all Mankind, 
io we find the Practice of it very early in the Church of 
God. There cam be no juft caufe to doubt, but that it 
was at leali contemporary with Inftrumental Mufick ; a 
thing as ancient as the Times of Adam^ invented by '''jxibd^ who was tlvi 
Father ef all fuc'o as handle th: Harp aiui Organ ^ Gen. 4, 2 ( . But we need 
not build upon Conjectures, where we have clear Evidence. After the 
famous Deliverance which God gave the Ifradites at the Red-Sea^ they 
celebrated the Mercy with a Song of Triumph ; and Jofphns fiys^They 
fpent the whole night in Hymns and Mirth ; Jh:-!i jang Mofs and the chiU 
dren of Jjrsel this Jong vrto the Lord, E.xod. 15. i. which is there upon 
Record, compofed ( as Jcfiphu^ adds; in Hexam'erer Verfe; and that it 
was conjoyned with Inftrumental Muikk is plain, wr/. 20, 21. A;:d

The Preface. 

tmuc?d this folemn WorfKip during the time of the Firfl and Second 
Temple, even till the Deftruftion thereof, foretold by our blefled Sa- 
viour, who faw the Glory thereof, and frequented that place, as he 
acknowledgeth, Luke 22. 53. I was daily with you in the Temple. And (as 
a Learned Divine obfervesj it is not credible, that our bleflfed Saviour, 
who fo often quoted David's Pfalms for the confirmation of his Doftrine, 
would negleft that part of Worfhip then in force, and who did himfelf 
fay, That it became him to ftdfil all righteoufmfs ; which he further tcfti- 
:fied, when together with his Difciples he fung a Vfalm ov Hymn at the end 
of the Celebration of his Laft Supper. After his Afcenfion, his Difci- 
ples gave teilimony of their Approbation, ^cfj 2.46,47. They were daily 
yoith one accord in the temple praijing God, Sec. And jicfs^. i. mentions, 
that Peter and John went up together into the tejnple nt the hour of prayer i 
which was tht fet time for the Celebration of publick Worlhip. 

The \j{(i of Singing Pfdms and Hymns was continued with great Re- 
vertnce and Devotion among the Primitive Chriftians; thofe \^lio con- 
fult the Writings of the Primitive Fathers, fhall fcarce meet with one 
that makes not mention thereof An account hereof I find learnedly 
•lifcourfcd by Dr. Cave in his Primitinje Chriflinnity, Part r. p. lyiJ, 277^ 
where, fjeaking of reading the appointed LelTons, he hath thcfe words : 
^oiit this p-irt of the Service it that th.j fmg Hymns and V'(i\mSt n 
ionfiderahle part of the Divijie JVorJlip, {as it had ever been accounted both 
m,nmgft }<t\YS and Gentiles ) and more immediately ferviceable for Celebrstin^ 
the Hojicur tf Gcd, and lifting up the Minds of Men to Divine and Heavenly 

But ro come nearer our Times .- In our late Forefathers days, (upon 
the Refiauration of our Church to its Primitive Purity and Difciplinej 
it was, Thiit feme holy and godly Men brought the prefent ufe and man- 
ner of hnging Pfilms into the Publick Service of our Church,following 
herein the Examples of the Reforjncd Chnrches in France zndGermany: But 
Time and long Uic hath much abated the wonted Reverence and Efti^ 
ination it had ibr about 100 Years after this Eilabliihmcnt. It Was the 
^'aying of a Learned Divine in his Sermon on this Subjeft, That Prayer 
foali ceafe, mid Preaching jhall ceafe, but Praifing of GOD jhall never 
Cfaf, neither in this world, nor in that whtsh is to come. To ling Fraifes to 
God, is an Angelic Oifice; it is a tafle of the Firft Fruits of Heaven 
^vhile we are on Earth. MUSIC K (the Learned fay) is the Handmaid 
toDlvinicy ; and there is no Science, except That, admitted into the 
S'^rvice of the Church. 

To conclude ; I have made it my Endeavour fo to perfeft andfinifli this 
Work, that notiiing lliould be wanting to render it ufefulto the End it 
is delignecl,The Glory of GOD, and the Publick Service of the Church: 
And fc r tl\ar reafon, ( with the Judgment of fome of the beft skilfd in 
Jvlufuk ) I have Compofed all rhe Mufical Tunes into Three Parts, 
<;/.t,. (,am-uf, M.r'tftij and B.^rfihs: The Church Tune is placed in the Treble 


The Preface 

Part, (which is the Cantw,) with the fi/»/> under it, as niofl: proper to 
joyn Voice and Inftmment together, according to holy David's pre- 
Icription, Pfal. I44. 9. And fincc many of our Churches are lately fur- 
niflicd with Organs, it will alfo be yfeful for the Organift ; and likewife 
for fuch Students in the Univerfitics as fhall praftife Song, to fing to a 
Lute or Viol. The M«?^/r// Part is compofed fas is proper) not to tife 
above the Church Tune, to cloud or obfcure the Ayre thsreor', except 
in fuch places as it could not be well avoided. The Bafs is compof«;d in 
fuch a compafs of Notes, as will fute an indifferent Voice both below 
and above. All I'hree Parts may as properly be fung by Men, as by 
Boys or Women : And to that end, the two Upper Parts are conftant in 
t\\Q. G fil re ut CWW, and the Bafs in the Ff^mt: (its proper) CiifF; al/ 
Three Parts moving together in Solemn way of Counterpoint, audalic 
every Ttine' put in fuph Keys as is moft furable to the Ayre thereof, 
Laftiy, you will find every Pjalm fitted to Tunes futable and proper ta 
the Matter : Pfalms of Prayer and Confeffion, to folemn grave Flat: 
Times ] Pfalms of Thankfgiving and Praile, to lively chearfuli'^/7rj>T«;/fj- 
Likewife all fuch Pfalms and Hymns whofe Tunes are long,and mayf^en^ 
difficult to ibme, have Dircfl:ions over them to be fung to other 
Common Tunes. Alfo there is affixed before the Book, a Table of the 
firft Line of the Treble-Tunes of all the Pfalms, with the Names alphabeti- 
cally fet over each Tuncj and under,what Pfalms are fung to them: And 
a Table of Hymns in a Page by themfelves. As for l/ijlmSfions to ths 
Singing of them, I refer you to my IntroduBion to the Skill of Mjcfick, in 8*^. 

I have no more to add, but as the Glory of G O D , the Service of 
his Church, was my fole End and Aim; fo I fliall account myl.abour 
and Pains herein fufficicitly recompenfed, if it prove Ufeful to fuch as 
fo endeavour to fmg the Praifes of their Creator here on Earth in Pfahns 
and Hymns ^ that hereafter they may eternally {in^^Halldnjahs amoQg the 
l)lefled Choir of Saints and Angels. Which js the hearty Prayer of 

Your Faithful Servant, 


A 2 r 

Of the Virtue apd Efficacy of the TSA LMS. 

IN the Pfalms are defcribed .the rewards of good, the punijhments of evil 
men, the ruMments of beginners, the progrefs of proficients, and cm- 
junimation of perfe£i: men. 

The Singing of Pfalms comforteth the fbrrawful, f/acifieth the angry, 
ftrmgthtiteth the weak, hiimbleth the prond, gladdeth x.\it\\umh\e, jlirreth up 
the flow, recomileth enemies, lifteth up the heart to heavenly things, and 
vniteth the Creature to his Creator; for whatfoever is in the Pfalms, con- 
duceth to the edif cation ^ benefit^ and wtfelation of mankind. 

If thou would'ft make a confejjion, and repent thee of thy fins ; then with 
Temorfe and humility fmg the 7 Penitential Pfalms of David, viz.. Pfal.^, 
32,38, 51, 102, 130,143. and thou (halt feel the fweet mercies of God, 
and thy mind refrefhed with fpiritual joy. 

If thou would ft pray ; then pour forth thy foul in Pfal. 25, 54, ^7,70, 
72,86,143. for the Ibulof man cannot either feelingly exprefs irsmiifery, 
tribulation, and anguifh of temptation, or more powerfully call upon 
the mercy of God, than in thefe Pfalms. 

If thou would'ft praife the Majefty of God, or give him thanks for all 
l)is benefits; then fmg Pfal. 103,104:, 105, 106. 107, 108, iii, 113, 144, 

If thou art fo far afflicted with outward and inward temptations, that 
thou feemeft to be forfaken ; then iing heartily Pfal. 22, 64, 69, 

If this prefent life be tedious unto thee, and that with an ardent defire 
thou waiteft to fee God ; then fmg Pfal. 42, 63, 84. 

If thou find thy felf quite dejeSed, and fas it were) forlorn in trouble; 
then with compunftion of heart nng Pfal. 13,3 1, 44, '54, 56. And if 
thou haft found eafe and reft unto thy foul, then ling to the praife of God 
^fal. 30, 34, 103, 104. Ai'id always fwhether in "time of advet-Jity or 
profpsrity) fmg out the So-;g of the ^ holy Children^ wherein every creature 
is iavited to praife God. 

If thou defireft toexercife thy {elfin God's divine praifes and precepts; 
then fing Pfal. 119. wherein if thou fearch even all thoii canft,yet thou" 
wilt never perfectly underftand thet;/WM^jand excellmcies^ or reach to the 
heights and depths cbmpiehe'nded in it ; for hardly is there a Verfe,wherein 
is not mention made of God's Layt\Qommandinints^Tefir'noniespT Precepts. 

In a word, he that gives thefe heavenly Hymns their due,had need to com- 
pofe a Pfalm in praife of the Pfalms, that fo the devout and joyful foul 
inight, with looking up toGod,refle(St upon its own work,and tranfport it 
felf unto the Choir of Angels and Saints, whofe perpetual task is to Ung 
their concording Parts without paufe, redoubling and defcanting, Holy^ 
Holy, Holy, Lord God of Hojh. And if Focal Mufick be not enough, let the /;?- 
jirtiwsntal be added, Rev. 1$. 2,3. Tf:^}' have in their hnv.ds the harps of God^

With other men they take/io part
